K. Kapoor, K.G. Subramanyan, The Guild Art Gallery, Mumbai, 2003, inside back cover, illustrated.
Mumbai, The Guild Art Gallery, K.G. Subramanyan, December 2003.
Often autobiographical and intensely narrative, K.G. Subramanyan's paintings draw from his experiences as an accomplished writer, designer, and educator. Employing an artistic style indicative of Indian folk art much as the cubistic styles of Western Modernism, Subramanyan addresses complex political and social issues often touching upon gender, sex and the inherent tension between public and private life.
